Official press release:
Prosthetic Records are excited to announce their latest signing, Portland progressive psych/doom metal trio Zirakzigil.
Named after the misty mountain peak from Tolkien’s legendary novel Lord of the Rings, Zirakzigil have been steadily conquering the Pacific Northwest since their formation in early 2013. Described by Revolver Magazine as “70’s prog-rock sliding down King Crimson’s mountain”, the trio are heavily influenced by both classical music and the famed prog-rock heavy weights of the 70’s such as the aforementioned King Crimson along with Yes, Gentle Giant and Rush – to name just a few. Their truly unique sound blends these elements along with touches of sludge and doom to create an onslaught of crushing heavy riffage fused with sporadic flourishes of progressive insanity.
Zirakzigil have announced they will reissue their sophomore album Worldbuilder, featuring updated artwork seen below, across all formats (CD, LP, and Digital) on June 10. A previously unheard bonus track, “Prolegoria”, will also be included only on digital and CD versions of the album. The effort was recorded and mixed with Billy Anderson (Neurosis, High on Fire).
The band commented:
“We are screaming in the faces of kittens with excitement about signing with Prosthetic Records, who have agreed to help us in our quest for world domination. The newly upgraded psychedelic Kantian mindfuck edition WORLDBUILDER release is only the beginning as we continue to conquer new realms of heaviness and complexity. Prepare yourselves for an avalanche of sonic wizardry.”
